Happy Valentine’s Day

Hannah and Audrey

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and before you know it, there will be lines of people buying roses at the grocery store and making reservations at our amazing local Reno restaurants. In fact, overall Valentine’s Day spending is expected to hit 19.7 billion dollars this year! Luckily, we have compiled a few tips to get you through another commercial holiday with your account unscathed. We have…

Dinner

Instead of going out to a fancy restaurant and buying an expensive meal, suggest making a meal together at home instead. There are plenty of easy, cheap, and tasteful recipes that are not only memorable, but enjoyable to make. And the best part is that you get to spend time with your significant other in the process. The only thing better than a five star meal is one that is made with love for someone you love.

Gifts

It may be tempting to want to splurge on your loved ones this Valentine’s Day, but handmade gifts are a great alternative on a budget. It can be as simple as framing their favorite picture, or writing a heartfelt note in a handmade card. For those with significant others, be sure to have a honest conversation about your expectations for this holiday. Many couples set spending limits or skip the holiday all-together in an effort to save.

Flowers

Flowers smell good, they look beautiful, and they can be delivered for a simple, yet special gift. A couple of ways to save on flowers this year is to make sure to order ahead and switch it up. Many florists give discounts for those who pre-order and you may be able to save even more if you have them delivered a few days before Valentine’s Day. Another option is to skip the roses and pick a different flower that is less pricey, or a favorite of your loved one.

Date Night

If you want to plan an extravagant date for your loved one, but don’t want to spend a fortune there are many ways to do both! Northern Nevada is home to many free, local, and inexpensive adventures. The Truckee River Walk offers delightful views and is located right next to the Art District. Just remember to bundle up! For those outdoorsy couples, there are many trails such as the Tahoe Pyramid Bikeway and Hunter Creek Trail to explore as well. Also, for the star lovers out there, the Fleishmann’s Planetarium offers inexpensive shows and even offers various discounts for students, teachers, military, 60+, etc.

 

Valentine’s Day is a special time that we get to celebrate LOVE! All of us on board here at Great Basin especially pride ourselves on being member-loved. And remember that even if you feel like you don’t have a Valentine this year, you are definitely ours, we appreciate you so much. Relationships are one of our core values here at Great Basin and we want to wish our members, their families, and friends a Happy Valentine’s Day.
